Fox News nails Trump budget chief: 3.4 million jobs have been added during Trump’s 19 months, but that’s fewer than the 3.7 million during Obama’s last 19 months. And as noted Friday: Inflation-adjusted wages rose a quarter of a percent per year under President Obama, but have DECLINED under Trump.
Billionaire Nick Hanauer argues: “Democrats Must Regain the Center . . . by Moving Hard Left.”
A super-important piece every Dem should read.
I don’t agree with every word — but the gist? Right on.
I’ve previously linked to this awesome graduation speech — Make Your Bed. It was delivered by a former Navy SEAL, now retired Admiral, in 2014, long before anyone imagined that a draft-avoiding, tax-avoiding, truth-avoiding, mob-consorting, Hitler-speech-reading, Putin-praising sociopath — who had never done anything for his country — would be elected president. If you missed that speech, or even if you didn’t, watch it now, knowing that this is the guy — William R. McRaven — who penned the open letter to Trump.
You want a Democratic candidate for 2020? I can think of loads of terrific choices. But add Admiral McRaven to the list.
In the meantime:

Quote of the Day
